I replied to your "laptop overheating" OP on July 5th but you did not reply :(
Is it the same computer and if so what steps have you tried to improve the cooling as it sounds like you have a clogged or failed cooling fan, previous topic http://www.geekstogo...03#entry2310703

Yes it is the same laptop.I've used compressed air to blow the dust away but i can't open the laptop to see if the fan is clogged or it has failed.
